HTML-Kit doesn´t save at FTP

  • Advertisement ( why? )
     

    SaschaValentin, 13th Feb 2015 3:00 am

    Hello together,

    I have setup an FTP-connection to my server and it loads all the files from there and also shows them in the editor and preview. Also changes are possible. But when I want to save these, nothing happens. In the upper right corner there shortly appears a little box showing three messages (something like "Save File" and "FTP...") mith checkboxes in front of them. But this window disappears at once without and nothing happens. The files on the server doesn´t change.

    Anybody knows this issue? And has someone a solution for this? HTML-Kit could be the perfect software for editing website-files on a server (in my case for a WP installation), but it´s sad it doesn´t work as it should.

    Hope you can help me

      Hi,

      Since you mentioned this is a WP (WordPress?) site, are you sure that
      the files you're saving are ones that can be edited outside of WordPress
      CMS interface? Are you editing plugin/theme files?

      Here's a quick test... if you have a static site, try editing/uploading
      a file there and it should work fine. Or try uploading a test static
      file in wp-content section of your site.

        Hi Chami,

        it doesn´t work anyway. I´ve uploaded an static HTML file with CSS-sheet, opened it from FTP server in HTML-Kit and changed two styles. When I click on save nothing happens. Only when I right-click the html-file in the explorer "My websites" und choose upload it works. But that only changes the html file and not the css one. Is there something wrong in the way I act. Maybe I give you a short overview of how I work...

        1. I´ve added a FTP Server and it works (shows all files and you can select and open them)
        2. Open an HTML file (or in case of the Wordpress-files a PHP from themes)
        3. Click on preview
        4. Click on inspector --> another window with an firebug-like inspector appears where I can change the styles
        5. In the preview window you can see all the changes on style
        6. To upload the changed CSS I click "save" and from this point on nothing happens.
        7. When I right-click the CSS file in "My websites"-explorer and choose to upload, it uploads but there are no changes in the file.

        Hope you can help because I would really like to work with HTML-Kit.

        Okay, I´ve noticed that changes made in the tab "elements" over the inspector doesn´t affect the CSS file. When I change some styles and take a look at the CSS file the are shown the old values. There might be my fault I think. Do I have to do something else to apply the changes I´ve made in the inspector? Do I have to manually insert them into the CSS?

          Hi,

          Yes, the inspector in preview is for debugging and trying out quick
          changes only. For them to be sticky, you'd have to edit the actual
          document in Edit tab. And then those changes will be reflected on the
          server once you upload.

          Hope this helps.

            Okay so far.

            But the main problem still remains. Nothing happens when I press save. Is this normal?
            Should it not upload all edited files? Or do I have to upload every file for itself?

              It depends on how the file is opened. If you open a file from a FTP
              folder, then it'll automatically upload it back to the server when you save.

              If you open a file from a local folder, and if you want to save to a FTP
              folder, you'd either have to manually upload it through the project
              window, or attach it to a FTP folder using "File > Upload."

                I stand in fear and trembling. I think that the blessed Chami
                misled the op.

                I also keep my "definitive" files on my local computer and upload
                the files to the server.

                If you right click on the project directory (on the right edge of
                the screen) or a subdirectory, one of the options is "Upload
                Current Document.." If you select that you get the "Upload File
                to Remote Folder" which allows you to do a bunch of stuff (like
                change the name when uploading) but also has the checkbox:
                "Remember remote folder" (default is checked) and "Attact to
                Remote Folder." (default is checkd).

                Checking these two means that any time you save the folder
                locally (menu bar or ctrl+U) it will be automagically saved on
                the remote folder on the server also.

                BTW, if you want to skip the "Upload File to Remote Folder" menu,
                you can use ctrl+shift+U and Kit just does the local and remote
                saves with no fuss.

                Now I will sit back and await the thunderbolt for having
                augmented the answer of the master.
